[Details/new features]

-       Use newest external library for HTTP handling.
-       enable/disable spider to POST forms in options panel to avoid generating unwanted traffic (default to enable). 
This is requested by many users.
-       Decrease the number of possible combinations crawled by spider on forms with multiple SELECT/OPTIONS. This make 
crawling less resource consuming and lower chance to affect application being scanned.
-       Minor UI changes.

-       Fallback database library to previous version as in Paros 3.2.10 because of a problem with hsqldb where some 
byte combination may consume 100% cpu time.
-       Increase width of method display in history to cater for other longer method names.
-       Default file scans may display incorrect HTTP message body if the original message is a POST request.
